Maryborough Ridge Residential Development, Douglas, Cork
The Maryborough Ridge scheme is characterised by the creation of distinct areas which form smaller neighbourhoods within a single development. These neighbourhoods are formed by creating clusters of housing around generous open spaces and by varying elevational treatments and material choices to define each area. The layout consists of 198 dwellings, comprising a range of apartments, duplex apartments and housing which provide a good mix of unit types for the area. The scale of development is in keeping with the existing housing surrounding the site which helps the scheme tie into the grain of the area in which it is located.
